I think I can I think I can...the little engine that could! I was determined to get the 'gosh' darn sky done this weekend. I thought I had 'lots' of wool dyed ahead for it...wrong! Then I panicked, that sky dyeing session was pretty crazy if memory serves me right, will I be able to dye something to match? I don't want as much purple, and red, more blue. Relax, you dye wool woman, you will be fine, look up your recipe and pray you wrote everything down! Thankfully I did and another 1/2 yard is presently drying! I had over dyed some textured wool and I had some of that left. I wanted to hook the last two flags so I hooked an Arcadian and the Nova Scotia flag. I have lots of tweaking I want to do once I get the sky done and I'm anxious to move onto my 'next' project so this has got to get done!
Here is a snap shot of the entire rug to date.
I didn't want to go outside this weekend it was so cold. Thankfully we had lots of beautiful sunshine which helps one always feel good.
Yesterday I spent the entire day dyeing up lots of new colors. They are all available on my web site. Beautiful golds and browns. I did up some swatches, 1/4 yards and bundles, something for everyone.
I had experimented in dyeing up some green and yellow and it turned out fabulous and a customer that dropped in on Saturday mentioned it looked like the John Deer colors so I had to name the wool that. I dyed up a lighter version of the same, both are so pretty.
I hope you have a great week and stay warm, spring is around the corner, I just know it!
